I do things like write and art and major in English even though I would like to major in everything. Lots of reblobbing--cats, art, social justice, ridiculous things, fan things, current obsessions (Welcome to Night Vale). I also write a fair amount of text posts that are often complainy but sometimes relevant and occasionally optimistic. Interested in mental health. I will talk about my own mental health.
Note: I tag gifs, gif sets, flashy gifs, "seizure warning," and common triggers. If you see something you would like tagged, please let me know.
and that’s why you don’t go around fixing people
and that’s why you don’t give up pieces of yourself to make someone else whole
We do this more than we think. Sometimes we reject those who have helped us the most. Other times, we help those who allow their egos to hide their humilities.

this is capitalism ripping through my memories i hold so sacred. Memories of walking through the streets of Chapala after school with my grandmother, and the smell of plants for the preparation of the big event. Memories of memories of memories
This is capitalism and white supremacy destroying, erasing and making new… something that has connected me with my elderes and ancestors,
This is whiteness telling me my body, our gente is unwanted, dehumanized and conditioned to death but at the same time extracting a part of my identity and wearing it as a mask.
This is a mask made of our dead and torn bodies… this is literally a mask made out of ripped bloody flesh. The flesh of migrants who die every year trying to cross.. the flesh of people who become criminalized and confined behind bars. The bloody flesh of torn bodies from years of exploitation in sweat shops, fruit and vegetable fields, dish washers.. domestic workers…
this is our flesh ripped out cleaned, pampered and styled to fit a white face.
today is bi visibility day. as such, bisexual people will be completely visible for the next 24 hours. this is a bad day to engage in bank heists, ghost impersonations, covert operations for vague yet menacing government agencies, and other common bisexual hobbies that rely upon our powers of invisibility.

i’m tired of people saying lesbians hate men. that’s such bullshit. you don’t have to be a lesbian to hate men. everyone hates men
Just in case
I’m actually going to reblog a thing just because this is really important.
As someone who has epilepsy and used to have several grand mal seizures a day, I’d also like to add that “offer help” can range anywhere from keeping the person calm to explaining to them where they are and what they were doing to even just telling them they should sit and rest for a while longer (lack or coordination is common, and it can be hard to walk straight or see clearly).
It’s okay for them to take up to a half hour to fully regain their bearings and sort out what they were doing prior to the seizure. Just answer any questions calmly and be there for support.
If they come around and you start to panic or shake them or ask them what the heck is wrong with them they are going to freak out and panic too.
I cannot stress it enough that this is bad.
If someone has a seizure and they come out of it, please. please stay calm.
They are likely disoriented and confused, even if it’s only for a minute or two, and you don’t want them panicking on top of that because they can have another seizure as a result.
This is great information to know! You never know when you might need to help save a life!
IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE HAS A SEIZURE CONDITION ASK THEM BEFORE IT BECOMES AN ISSUE HOW TO HANDLE IT!!
This is really great info for people who have never handled seizures, but not all of this is going to work in every setting. The only really universal tips here are : NEVER put anything in the mouth; time the seizure; do NOT hold down, and loosen tight clothing.
As I stated, this is good for an emergency, but if you able to talk to the person before there is an emergency, find out how their seizures should be handled.
And ALWAYS call 911 if a seizure lasts more than six minutes or the person begins to choke or have trouble breathing.
i keep forgetting that 911 is localized. Basically, call the emergency number.
Also, make sure to move ANYTHING that they could bump into and hurt themselves on. Tables, chairs, whatever. But try to stay back once they really start to convulse, because their muscles are working at full strength with no control and you could get hurt while trying to assist them.
Emma Sulkowicz is on the cover of this month’s New York Magazine and that is the coolest thing wow
DUUUUDE this is a huge fucking deal honestly
I just want to put out there that Princess, an AfroLatina trans woman at Temple University, also talks about how her university downright refused to investigate her rape even though medics and police officers were there after the assault, and let her rapist walk away unquestioned.
Source (x), which much more details.
Please use the momentum of this story to help multiply marginalized women, especially those who are getting absolutely *no* support or attention for the violence they are surviving.
today’s an “eat all the blueberry muffins and replay all the flash games i beat in first year” kinda day
